Magaya’s Church Claims Tithes & Offerings Are Not Taxable

Walter Magaya’s church, Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries (PHD), has denied charges of tax evasion as the trial commenced before Regional Magistrate Hosea Mujaya.

PHD ministries are accused of failing to remit tax for over US$28 million realised from sales of wristbands, church regalia, anointed oil and water which they have refuted in court indicating that they do not carry any trade.

PHD Ministries, through its defence lawyers, Admire Rubaya and Everson Chatambudza indicated that the church does not realise any taxable income as it relies on donations and tithes which are not taxable:
